This is saddening. I hope that the African government would implement necessary laws and impose penalties so that this deed would stop. The pictures are heart-wrenching. The people who did these to those elephants should be held accountable. The government should be aware that these elephants are murdered by greedy people.

How could they do this to these poor animals? What happens when they kill all the elephants in that region? Will they go killing other animals as well just to satisfy their need for money and violence? People who do these kinds of crimes should be imprisoned. These animals' lives have value too. They are not just some show piece or a piece of product you can barter for your own selfish desires. I hope that crimes like this will be brought to justice and that elephants are to be protected so that their species can live longer.

This is horrible. How could those people did this to the innocent elephants. It really breaks my heart when I saw this. It like is is easy for them to kill these animals just for the sake of getting the tusk from it. That is illegal killing the elephants and selling their tusk for the some bucks. I really do not understand them why they would they do this just because they are badly in need of money. It is not counted as a valid reason, because you can find a work. We should protect and preserve these kinds of animals an also the nature itself.

Very inspirational to hear about someone pursuing their dream and becoming successful instead of following the traditional path.

What are these? It is so sad that some of the wild life today are little by little dying. Who are we to blame? Is it because of the natural means or just because of the little care of the people about our nature today? We cannot really take care of them personally. But by means of protecting the nature where they live, we can extend our hands to them and feed them as if we are feeding them with our own hands and touch.

According to the movie "The Secret" and many other sources, we have to send out a wish to the Universe, and then be ready to receive. We can amplify our intentions by using meditation and visualization. But very often, we work against ourselves. We have blockings that limit ourselves in reaching our goals. There are ways to remove those blockings, though, and one of the simplest and most effective consists of only four simple phrases.
